Performance Analyses of Routing Protocol in Multihop Mobile Adhoc Networks
An ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes dynamically forming a temporary network without the use of any existing network infrastructure or centralized administration. A number of routing protocols such as Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing (AODV) and Destination-Sequenced Distance-Vector (DSDV) have been implemented. Routing in ad-hoc networks is nontrivial due to highly dynamic nature of the nodes. In recent years several routing protocols targeted at mobile ad-hoc networks are being proposed and prominent among them are DSDV, AODV, TORA, and DSR.
